BLACK HISTORY & BLACK LEGACY!

If your student has a sibling who is interested in attending Drew, or if your student currently attends Cox Pre-K at Drew and would like to enroll in Drew’s kindergarten, you may submit a 2023-2024 lottery application now through April 30th. All qualifying applications received during the application window will be included in an admissions lottery on May 4th, 2023.

Please note that the lottery is for potential new students only. This includes students currently enrolled in the Cox Pre-K Program at Drew who would like to attend kindergarten at Drew.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our Board of Directors invites you to join them for a Meet and Greet on Monday, February 13, at 10:30 am, in the Drew Center for the Arts (Theater). Board Chair Shannon Longino and members of the Board are pleased to provide a chance for Drew’s parents and guardians to meet and visit with those representing the school.

Immediately following the Meet and Greet, the Drew Board of Directors Meeting will begin at 11:00 am.

We hope you can join us!

Parent Survey Link is LIVE!

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) wants to hear from all parents of students with disabilities.  Each year the GaDOE reports on Indicator 8: The percentage of parents who report that the school facilitated parent involvement. The GaDOE uses a survey that is disseminated statewide to measure this indicator.  This your time to give feedback and your participation is both important and valued. The ten-questions electronic survey is available online only. Our goal is to have 100% participation!

The survey link will be open until May 31, 2023. 

http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Special-Education-Services 

The survey link can be accessed on the following websites:

We are incredibly appreciative of our families who engaged in the process of creating Drew’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan.  Your input was significant in ensuring that the plan collectively represents voices and aspirations from broad, diverse sectors of our school community. We are at the midpoint of the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan and would love to keep the conversation going as the implementation continues. Join our Head of School, Peter McKnight, on Thursday, January 19, at 6:00 pm, for the upcoming Conversation with the Head of School for a comprehensive update on where we are in the process.

COVID Policy Safety and Testing Updates:

Based on the current CDC guidance regarding local COVID-19 Community Levels, we will lift our mask requirement for visitors and staff. This change is based on the most current CDC guidance and information regarding transmission levels for Dekalb and Fulton counties, which can be viewed here.  Since both Fulton and DeKalb counties are at a medium Community Level, masks are strongly recommended but not required for students, staff, and families on Drew’s campus. As we continue to interact in ways that feel more like our pre-pandemic environment, it’s important to remember that we all have different perspectives about relaxing our mitigation practices. Please respect and support one another as we move forward.

Thank you for continuing to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. Take care, and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.

[Click Here to Opt in for FREE COVID Testing]

If your student has been testing with Viral Solutions over the past few weeks, they are already in the system and there is no need for them to opt-in again. Stay safe!

COVID TESTING SCHEDULE

Sunday: 10:00am – 2:00pm (EA Parent Pick-up lanes)

Use the following link if you obtain COVID test results from outside of Drew.

Submit results here: Submit External COVID Test Results – Link

For details and access to other resources related to COVID-19 > > > See Here

Please note: Returning to campus tests must be conducted no earlier than 2 days from when you plan to be present on campus, please submit test results via the link above if using external testing site.
